Demonic Death Judge returns with their fourth full length album The Trail. Mixed by Andrew Schneider (Cave In, Mutoid Man etc.), The Trail takes you on a spiritual whirlwind within a troubled soul. Showcasing a fully matured orchestra not afraid of evolving, The Trail is ready for your indulgence on 27th March 2020 through Suicide Records.

The Trail began as a mindset – a Nevada desert scenery turned into soaring melodies tasting like light beer, whiskey shots, and sand. The concept eventually developed into a story of a person stuck in a loop of self-destructive behaviour and finding deliverance through an unexpected spiritual journey.

The record was completely recorded and produced by the band, and the recording process was based on preforming as much live as possible. The result was then mixed by Andrew Schneider and mastered by Carl Saff who were 110% in tune with our ideas and production, which resulted in a killer sound.

The record forms its narrative through uncompromising groove and relentless, crushing riffs that DDJ is known for, however, introducing a wider array of psychedelic and atmospheric elements than before. The Trail is the
most whole record to come from DDJ, and by far the best.
